Ben Affleck ‘had fun’ at Grammys regardless of memes
Ben Affleck is aware of he’s meme materials and doesn’t appear to thoughts.
In a canopy story for the Hollywood Reporter printed Thursday the “Air” star and director opened up about his new manufacturing firm, his household life and his look on the sixty fifth Grammys that resurrected these “sadfleck” memes.
“I had a good time at the Grammys,” he informed the Hollywood Reporter in a wide-ranging interview. “My wife was going, and I thought, ‘Well, there’ll be good music. It might be fun.’”
On Feb. 5, the Oscar winner joined spouse Jennifer Lopez on the annual music celebration, held at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena. Eagle-eyed viewers noticed Affleck in the background, seemingly disengaged during host Trevor Noah’s monologues.
One viewer said that Affleck looked “miserable” whereas the Chicks in the Office account urged, “Someone please check on Ben Affleck #GRAMMYs.”
Affleck informed THR that he hoped to get away from the highlight when Noah got here round for one among his monologues, however that Lopez informed him, “you better f— not leave.”
“That’s a husband-and-wife thing,” he added.
The actor mentioned he’s no stranger to being “pissed,” “bored” or “drunk” at awards reveals. However, he wasn’t a fan when some Twitter customers accused him of being drunk on the Grammys. Affleck has been vocal about his struggles with dependancy and alcoholism,
“I thought, ‘That’s interesting,’” he mentioned. “That raises a whole other thing about whether or not it’s wise to acknowledge addiction because there’s a lot of compassion, but there is still a tremendous stigma, which is often quite inhibiting.”
Elsewhere within the interview Affleck mentioned “the best part” of being public about his struggles with dependancy is that “sometimes people call me up and they’re like, ‘Hey can you help me out?’”
“And it makes me feel so good to do that,” he mentioned.
